Vehicle Security

Prevention Techniques

If it's not possible to park your vehicle within eyesight of your group, leave it some place where it can be watched by park patrols or someone you know; or arrange for someone to drop you off and pick you up later. Other prevention techniques are:
  • Equip your vehicle with locking lug nuts to prevent your wheels from being stolen
  • If you must leave valuables in your vehicle, place them in the trunk - not under the front seat or hidden under clothing (Be cautious that you are not being observed when putting valuables in your trunk)
  • Install an alarm device in your vehicle which will activate a siren, horn or lights to frighten thieves away
  • Install a battery locking device to prevent the battery from being stolen
  • Install a locking hood latch
